Questions on the exam might ask you to bring into conversation two historical figures. Example: Marcus Garvey and the head of the Ku Klux Klan (1922) Marcus Garvey, a Jamaican entrepreneur, did actually meet with the head of the KKK. Marcus Garvey was the founder of the UNIA (Universal Improvement Negro Association). As one of the first major black nationalists, he made tours around the US spreading his belief that African Americans should all move to Africa. He firmly believed that all black people should have the right to start their own businesses, which would serve only blacks. He was radical in going as far as to thank people in the south for lynching because it served as a “wake-up call” to blacks. The NAACP called him “The Supreme Jamaican Jackass.” The Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, Hiram Evans, was also the leader of a large and influential group. He ran the KKK like a well-oiled organized business. His version not only condemned African Americans, but Jews and Catholics as well. He was patriotic to an extent, meaning that America would only thrive if the “supreme race,” whites, were dominant. Like Garvey, he wanted blacks out of the country.
